Names in Consideration for the First Round

Here’s a quick list of all the players I’ve seen linked to a possible first round selection in recent weeks (locks denoted with *):

Steven Strasburg, RHP, San Diego State*
Dustin Ackley, OF, North Carolina*
Aaron Crow, RHP, Ft. Worth Cats*
Tanner Scheppers, RHP, St. Paul Saints*
Grant Green, SS, USC*
Jacob Turner, RHP, Westminster Christian Academy (MO)*
Alex White, RHP, North Carolina*
Tyler Matzek, LHP, Capistrano Valley HS (CA)*
Zack Wheeler, RHP, East Paulding HS (GA)*
Shelby Miller, RHP, Brownwood HS (TX)*
Matt Purke, LHP, Klein HS (TX)
Kyle Gibson, RHP, Missouri*
Mike Leake, RHP, Arizona State*
Tim Wheeler, OF, Sacramento State*
Max Stassi, C, Yuba City HS (CA)
Rex Brothers, LHP, Lipscomb*
Tony Sanchez, C, Boston College
Jiovanni Mier, SS, Bonita HS (CA)
Bobby Borchering, 3B, Bishop Verot HS (FL)*
James Paxton, LHP, Kentucky
Drew Storen, RHP, Stanford
Billy Bullock, RHP, Florida
Donavan Tate, OF, Cartersville HS (GA)
Mike Trout, OF, Millville HS (NJ)*
Andy Oliver, LHP, Oklahoma State
Wil Myers, C, Wesleyan Christian Academy (NC)*
Chad Jenkins, RHP, Kennesaw State
Eric Arnett, RHP, Indiana*
Garrett Gould, RHP, Maize HS (KS)
Chad James, LHP, Yukon HS (OK)*
Kyle Heckathorn, RHP, Kennesaw State
Jared Mitchell, OF, LSU
Rich Poythress, 1B, Georgia
Mike Minor, LHP, Vanderbilt
AJ Pollock, OF, Notre Dame
Tyler Skaggs, LHP, Santa Monica HS (CA)
Matt Hobgood, RHP, Norco HS (CA)
Everett Williams, OF, McCallum HS (TX)
Tommy Joseph, C, Horizon HS (AZ)
Matt Davidson, 3B, Yucaipa HS (CA)
Brett Jackson, OF, California
Aaron Miller, LHP, Baylor
Brody Colvin, RHP, St. Thomas More HS (LA)
Luke Bailey, C, Troup County HS (GA)
David Renfroe, SS/RHP, South Panola HS (MS)
LeVon Washington, OF, Buchholz HS (FL)
Reymond Fuentes, OF, Callego HS (PR)
Marc Krauss, OF, Ohio

I’d be more than a little surprised if someone not on this list goes in the first round.  I count 48 names for 32 slots, though I’m sure there are two more out there that could round out my list to 50.  I also count 19 locks, meaning that it’s likely the remaining 29 names battling it out for 13 slots.  That’s how confusing this draft will likely be.  If you have any more names you’d like me to add, I’ll do so.
